 Say ‘tak’ to the vaccine

 Last updated 10/12/2021

 

Ealing’s strength is its diversity and, in order to encourage people from every community to get their vaccine, we have started a series where we interview members of the public on why they have had their vaccine and why they would encourage their loved ones and neighbours to have theirs. Watch this video available in Polish and English from local resident Joanna Duczynska, who is an English teacher and runs walking tours across Ealing and areas of London about why she got the vaccine: https://www.aroundealing.com/news/say-tak-to-the-vaccine/
